Nicole Paris and Ed Cage: A beatboxing lesson from a father-daughter duo

December 11, 2015 at 10:56AM


Nicole Paris was raised to be a beatboxer — when she was young, her father, Ed Cage, used to beatbox her to sleep at night. Now the duo is known for their beatbox battles and jam sessions, which mix classic rap beats with electronic dance sounds. Prepare yourself for a bit of a hip-hop history lesson, and enjoy the show.

#1 video on Beatbox Battle TV

November 24, 2010 at 06:47PM

Wow, I found out that one of my recent videos (from my HAT Party blog entry) got featured as "Jason Tom from Hawaii" on the Beatbox Battle TV network, the world's largest beatboxing archive. What an honor! Maximum respect to Beatbox Battle!!!!

Then to my biggest surprise "Jason Tom from Hawaii" skyrocketed to the top as a TOP 10 clip from #7 to #1. It fell off temporarily and climbed back up from#9 to #1. Thanks to you the supporters that have viewed, rated, and commented on the video. I want to thank you all for making the video #1!

Jason Tom opens for Michael Winslow

I will be opening up for the human sound-effects machine/comedian Michael Winslow on Wednesday, December 30th (next week) at Pipeline Cafe. Real stoked. I grew up watching the Police Academy movies.

Jason Tom TEDxHNL

November 4, 2009 at 11:16AM

This TEDTalks' video was filmed on February 2003 (though posted on October 2008), filmed more than a year before I started performing as a beatboxer. Now when I watch it again I find it to be inspiring hearing his snares, vocal turntable techniques, and style. He is quite original.

On May 14, 2009 my general manager sent me this video of James "AudioPoet" Burchfield. Prior to that I googled "beatbox poet" since I find myself mostly connected with the Hawaiʻi poetry scene (as opposed to the Hawaiʻi hip-hop scene) as a beatboxer, and that same vid popped up. My first impression was that it reminded me of a similar setting of a performance I did on February 9, 2009 as a guest artist for a UH Manoa speech class. I even had the same mic set up.

Word of Life Emerge and ISA LA 09

September 2, 2009 at 09:56AM

I performed for Emergeʻs "5 Minutes of Fame" event at the Word of Life Christian Center (WOLCC) this past Friday, and I had a good time. Of my 5 years of live beatbox performing experience I personally consider WOLCC to have the best live sound system and stage on the island.

I performed...

- Romans 12:2 (a scripture from the Holy Bible NIV)
- Billie Jean by Michael Jackson (with the dance intro, vocals, and the moonwalk)
- Listen Carefully by Jason Tom (one of my originals with vocals)
- then I capped it off with an idea I worked on that same morning just to experiment live for the first time as an outro

 

Since Iʻm currently very limited to my Internet access I might as well post up whatʻs coming up now on this blog...

 

1. Iʻll be filming for a half…

The Movement featuring ABDC Quest Crew on DVD

August 12, 2009 at 01:52AM

           
*Scans of the July 12th event program for the Movement

Last month (July 12th) I opened up for America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC) Quest Crew for the Movement at the McKinley High School Auditorium.

I'm also an alumnus of McKinley High School, and I was featured in McKinley High School's student newspaper the Pinion (the final issue for the 2008-2009 school year) less than a month prior. It was fun performing in front of a crowd expecting to see a full on dance show, and as the crowd settled in I opened up the dance event as a solo human beat box act with a breakdown boogie down near the end.

The Movement is now available on DVD. In the DVD it features my performance opener, Hypersquad, Studio 808, Honolulu Dance Studio, Nixp…

Jason Tom Word of Life performance

December 1, 2008 at 05:30PM

I was browsing the web, and found out only today that this is uploaded:

 

That's me performing at the Word of Life talent contest on October 2008, and following this performance I held a beatbox workshop at Word of Life Academy. I was invited to Word of Life for these specific events by different parties, and knew of the beatbox workshop first. This video showcases my first time at Word of Life, and I now consider Word of Life my home church. Praise the Lord!

There are soooooooo many others I could list! I LOVE to read!

Well, here are some of my favorite classics: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Lord of the Rings (series) by J.R.R. Tolkien. Some great non-fiction books about the dance culture I love include Foundation by Joseph Schloss, which is an excellent book about NYC B-boy/B-girl or breaking/breakdance culture, Can't Stop Won't Stop by Jeff Chang, which is a great historical analysis of American Hip Hop culture, and The Underground is Massive by Michelangelo Mathos, an amazing history of electronic dance music culture. Happy reading everyone :)

Enders Game, The Great Gatsby, Of Men and Mice, Maximum Ride. I need to read more books. I haven't read so long Bc I've been attached to the ones I've already read.

Congratulations, my friend! I'm so happy for you, Jason!!! How awesome and totally wicked would that be! I know you've worked really hard and is always inspiring people all over the world. You do you and keep up the great work. Dreams do come true and good things do happen to good people!

Now wouldn't that be something! Your art has definitely touched lives. I look forward to the day it gets built. I'll be excited for that sam choy aquatic center also :D

Aye that's lit. Keep doing what you're doing and you're putting a positive influence to a lot people

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.
